    Hey Maddy. I know this is last minute, but I’m wondering if I can change my topic? The reason why is because I’m currently doing a blog series on Katharine Hepburn, and watching her entire filmography in order from first to last, so because of that, Can I write about the Film Noirs that Katharine made?

    Hi Maddy, I know this is very late, but any chance I can join the fun and post my thoughts on The Chase (1946) with Robert Cummings and Peter Lorre? I can have it up for Monday, the last day of the blogathon!

      Thanks, Le. I was having trouble commenting on your site, so I hope you see this reply here. Great review! This is another that I need to see. Audrey Totter is fabulous and I’m looking forward to seeing her performance in this one. Thanks so much for joining. x

    Maddy…I totally ditched you. And that is inexcusable. I didn’t forget you…and I’m not making excuses…but I had watched Sin City and written down my thoughts when I was taken off to a spur-of-the-moment week away. It was under strict terms that because I’ve been working way into the night and over weekends this last year I was not allowed any technology…just focus on family for a change. So…I’m really sorry I didn’t let you know, that I didn’t send you anything but I really didn’t have a choice…at this point I need to focus on family…

        Thanks Maddy. I still feel horrid though…but I was given an ultimatum…I’ve really focussed too much on work lately…
        I’ll see you at the next Blogathon though. And that’s a promise.

    Dear Maddy,

    I am very sorry to send you my article so late, but I finished it: Its date is Sunday, but I haven’t been able to send it to you until now. I hope that you will still be able to include it in the Day 2 or Day 3 roster. I really enjoyed watching and reviewing “The Dark Mirror” for this blogathon. I apologize for being so tardy with the link.

    Yours Hopefully,

    Tiffany Brannan
